I spent some time studying the Amsterdam apparitions and published the results privately since I consider them of Satanic origin. I was deeply troubled on reading them and took the issue into prayer. I do not consider my position conclusive at this point and should it change, I will make my work public.
Consider that Fr. Chad Ripperger, in talking about exorcism, (read: Exorcism an Exorcism: Part 2) says that Satan hates Mary more than any other being. This is manifest in Revelation 12 where Satan as a red dragon attempts to kill Mary. In the apparitions you will notice how Mary’s name is expunged and replaced by the self-chosen name ‘The Lady of All Nations’ a name more appropriate for the context of the proposed universal church which is being created today.
Another point to note is the name the apparition wishes to assign to Mary. In approved apparitions, the title given to Mary is “Our Lady of …”. The word “our” is a possessive adjective capturing the personal relationship that we have with Mary. It is defined as:
of or relating to us or ourselves or ourself especially as possessors or possessor, agents or agent, or objects or object of an actionMerriam-Webster dictionary.
This emphasizes the personal relationship Mary has with each of us individually. In the alleged apparition, the title that “Mary” wishes to assume is “The Lady of..”. The word “the” is a definite article:
The definite article (the) is used before a noun to indicate that the identity of the noun is known to the reader.Butte College
Apart from depersonalizing Our Lady, the choice of this word merely affirms that the person who speaks the title, knows the “Lady”, i.e. Mary. This is true of Satan who knows Mary but cannot bring himself to describe the form of his knowledge as that of a personal spiritual relationship since his refusal to do so was the very cause for his disobedience to God and fall from Grace.
Further, Mary, as the Mother of God, has a much larger role and domain than that of “all nations” which is Satan’s domain for a short time. This places Mary below himself in the same way that he tried to get Jesus to accept a place below himself:
8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”Matthew 4:8, NKJV
It is troubling also that she assigns herself new roles of co-redemptrix and mediatrix.
That much of what is in the apparitions is true, both prophetically and factually is not a problem for Satan, as long as he can insert subtle distortions and misdirections. In the following video, it seems that the Church also has misgivings about their authenticity. That many souls will be swayed by and attracted to the humanistic sentiment in the apparitions is a characteristic of our age and a path to damnation.
Here’s the video (23:19 minutes):
As I stated, I consider these apparitions as satanic meant to subvert the Roman Catholic Church and the role of Our Lady Mary. Although I did background research and make such freely available, in this case I will not. They are certainly supernatural as are all demonic and satanic manifestations. Understand what I mean if I tell you that the stove is hot, do not touch it.
